You will join a growing international team of experienced patent attorneys operating in a highly enriched field of science. You join a company which is the global leader within vaccines research, development and production and with a heritage spanning over 100 years. You will be located at one of the Company’s key Research Centres in Siena, Italy and you will have an international role which encapsulates the entire spectrum of patent matters.
You will be interacting with the technical team identifying new inventions and evaluating competitor landscape and any FTO issues. You will have visibility to all relevant internal stakeholders and your involvement in support of the many projects being initiated is pivotal to the ongoing achievement of the company’s objectives. This role does not just ask of you to manage a portfolio of substantive patent cases. You will be given the opportunity to work on other high value IP issues including oppositions, attending and leading oral proceedings, and supporting business development activities such as licensing and collaborations. GSK’s patent department operates a flat hierarchy which allows for a flexible and dynamic working group to be at the interface of science, law and business. To this end, the position can be dressed to suit the individual in terms of providing exciting career stretch in the first year and career growth thereafter. However, success in this international organization requires the willingness to learn, develop, be taken out of your comfort zone, and to have a curious attitude; to never accept the status quo but to challenge, question and deliver.
